Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] wireshark compilation on Unix

   As you know the wireshark unix side was not yet compiling without
warning when Ulf finished the job on the windows side.
   Now, except for a very few dissectors remaining, Wireshark is
compiling successfully with - at least - gcc-3.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, gcc-4.0.4
and gcc-4.1.2 without any warning. It's not working with gcc-2.95 on my
Linux box because of a 'visibility' qualifier used in a glib header file

I therefore thought it was time to modify the configure script to
automatically stop on a warning (when using gcc).

Do not hesitate to report problems, hoping there won't be any :)
In case of emergency, though, ./configure --without-warnings-as-errors
should help you
